Agenda 21 For Dummies

I first became aware of ICLEI last month. Sure, I had heard the name "Agenda 21", but I had no idea what it was about. This has been going on for decades, under the guise of warm fuzzy names like "sustainable development", right under our noses, under the radar, out of the reach of the US Constitution, and with the help and approval of politicians from both sides of the aisle. Many so-called "non profit" community organizers are paying themselves handsome salaries with federal grant money to sue us, regulate us, and to confiscate our property rights. They are using our tax dollars against us.

The 'progressives' at ICLEI have latched on to the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hypothesis even though there is no objective proof that it exists, and no experiment that you could run to prove it. You just have to believe, because the consequences if you do not are so dire. Where have I heard that argument before? Oh, that's right -- religion! The big difference is, the first amendment prevents government from interfering with or establishing any religion. The Church of AGW on the other hand, is somehow exempt from the same constitutional constraints.

Under the influence of ICLEI and Agenda 21, public schools are now teaching that objective truth is unknowable, so it isn't worth seeking. There's only one reason for saying that: So that upcoming generations will believe claptrap like AGW. It's a handy tool to keep people from questioning anything. Knowledge is power, and the truth will set you free.

Here's a bit of truth: There is no experiment that can prove AGW, but there is incontrovertible evidence that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. We have run countless experiments with communist, socialist, top-down central governments, and the results are invariably the same: Poverty, oppression, tyranny. If AGW actually exists, a free society would simply adapt to make the necessary changes, automatically and voluntarily. We don't need government to force us to do the right thing. Even so, given the choice, I would rather die of AGW than from government oppression.

Nobody I know (preservative or 'progressive') is in favor of trashing the planet or the environment. However, if you scratch an environmentalist, you usually find a 'progressive' just beneath the surface. It is obvious to me that 'progressives' are simply using the environment as a tool to undermine America's founding principles. We must protect our founding principles before we lose them entirely.

  1. 'Progressives' are shape-shifting again: they are changing the name anthropogenic global warming (AGW) to "anthropogenic climate change" (ACC) because it is becoming evident that the climate is in fact, not warming. No problem, we'll just change the lexicon, and go skipping, la-de-da, on down the primrose path.

    Here's a bit of truth: the climate has been changing forever, and it always will. 'Progressives' couldn't ask for a more useful hammer to pound people into line!
